Cultured Ehrlich ascites tumor cells show increased N-linked alpha 2,6-sialyltransferase activity.


Ehrlich ascites tumor cells (EAT cells) are routinely grown in the peritoneal cavity of mice. These cells, EAT-wt, grow in suspension and exhibit a high level of alpha-2,3-O-linked sialyltransferase activity with benzyl-T-antigen (Gal beta 1,3Ga1NAc-alpha-O-CH2C6H5) as acceptor. These cells also contain a very low level of alpha-2,6-O-linked and alpha-2,6-N… (More)
